Exam candidates set to benefit from Study Skills session
November 4, 2021

GCSE and A Level examination candidates at Rydal Penrhos are set to benefit from some additional revision skills thanks to an upcoming initiative.

Rydal Penrhos is constantly searching for ways to assist our learners in whatever way we can. Especially during such an important stage where results can dictate university destinations or opportunities in the working world.

Those sitting exams in 2022 and 2023 are set for a substantial boost in their revision preparations after staff organised special Study Skills presentations with a leading company, who will be visiting the school on Tuesday 16 November.

Maximise Your Potential, who are industry-leaders in providing high-impact study skills, are going to spend two hours with Year 10 and 11 pupils in the morning before focusing on Key Stage 5 (Years 12 and 13) shortly after.

Andy Thomas, who is Assistant Principal and Director of Teaching & Learning at Rydal Penrhos, said: “The focus of the presentations is to get the pupils to really understand the benefits of good study practice and to take ownership of their learning.

“So, as well as equipping them with a range of evidence-based study skills which will deliver measurable results, Maximise Your Potential are aiming to encourage resilience, a readiness to learn from failure, and a ‘can-do’ attitude’.”

Among the plethora of topics that will be discussed during the presentations are goal setting, independent learning, effective planning, memory techniques, revision techniques and all-important exam preparation.

These presentations come just a few short weeks before mock examinations, which is a tremendous opportunity for pupils to sample an exam situation and learn from the experience before the real thing.

This is yet another dimension to the school’s comprehensive approach with our pupils’ progress in mind. It’s sure to be a hugely informative day that will benefit than all significantly.
